What Our Clients Say
I just want to thankyou for everything you’ve done, I appreciate your patience & understanding. Please pass my thanks along to Katherine as well.
I would like to thank Katherine Hawes and the team for the outstanding work they have dealt with this year. I recently had a social media bullying case and with knowledge of the team it was dealt with. Digital Age Lawyers "cares" for their clients.
I highly recommend Digital Age Lawyers for any law case.
Thank you so much Katherine Hawes and the team.
On behalf of the bentART Committee I would like to say a huge thank you for your generous sponsorship of bentART 2023. The 18th exhibition was outstanding in every way. Over 100 artworks were displayed, with thirty percent of artists new to bentART. Almost a third of the artworks sold. A total of 785 visitors came through the gallery between Friday night and Monday afternoon (some were repeat visitors) and the feedback about the exhibition was very positive.
Susan Robbins - President, bentART Inc
Digital Age Lawyers have an office in Richmond and are passionate about making wills that work.
I have seen Katherine speak and have been involved with her assisting a business who was being bullied on-line. She acted immediately and the owners were grateful and relieved. A First Class down-to-earth solicitor who genuinely cares.
Had a fabulous meeting with a lawyer yesterday! Yes, a LAWYER!! Tears of laughter whilst discussing some pretty important but boring stuff. Law needn’t be scary, boring or confusing if you have the right lawyer. Thank you Katherine Hawes. I’m looking forward to working with you.
Thank you for your support! We are so excited looking forward to working on our next investment with you all.
